    Completely understandable. As you stated in your opening post, this is intended to be as OEM as possible... Just if you ever decide to go to auto switching (which, in my opinion, is a great feature), the bug is there.

    I'll play around with the included files to see if removing the overlay function altogether works fine while keeping the left pane at its extended state. However, now that DST is in effect, I don't get the opportunity to hit the auto-switch time.

    I'll still give this skin a thumbs up though, even with the small bugs

    Thanks!

    Quote from first post in this topic:

    Also phone is not supported. I tried endlessly the various plugins available but can't get any of them to work as they should. At the moment I'm completely fed up with phone related stuff. I kept the button in the skin however and there are empty Phone.skin and .jpg files so people who want can create there own phone screen based on those.
    Basicly the answer to your question is: not... Although the button is there, no phone support is present in the skin.

    It's possible in the future I will look into Phone support again (for the gazillioned time) and try to make something work. At the moment... See quote.

    Hi Kruben.

    No this is for the old I-bus BMW's, as far as I know there is nothing availible for the I-drive cars.

    iDrive control is not supported altough in theory it can be controlled by anything that can control RR. So if someone comes up with the necessary hard and software to make iDrive control RR, it can be controlled by it.

    Carx24 has a frondend for iDrive cars. But integrating the hardware seems quite difficult from what I've seen of it. Here's a link.

    tobmag, you meen controling it with the OEM naviscreen buttons/knobs. I really haven't done anything with that since I don't have an OEM navi. I also don't know the iBus codes for those buttons.

    The only ones I use are the steering wheel buttons. I have made "on" state screens for the menu's and a modified iBusRR file that uses the steering wheel buttons to navigate through the menus. Downside is that when in any of the menus there is no volume control and track control since the buttons are then used for navigation.
    The only copy of this iBusRR.ini file is in my car. I will make a copy of it and put it online along with the new skin with the "on" state screens in the next couple of days.

    Further than that nothing really has changed to the skin since my last post here.

    Code:

    Yes thats right, you will actually find all codes in the CarX .ini file.
    If you dont have the OEM navi in your car I assume it will be difficult for you to develop.....
    There is not really any good front ends out there. CarX is working but way to many bugs, right now Im using CarMedia instead much simplier but without bugs at least:-)

    hi
    Did you include the Ibus plugin in this skin?
